Are you bored of all these contests and the constant rehearsals?? Is your new year resolution to spend more time with your family or concentrating on your career?? Lydgate Band (Saddleworth) rehearse just once a week and don't do any contests apart from Whit Friday. The band are currently starting work on a new concert programme and are happy to welcome ANY player, of ANY age and ANY standard. We understand that lots of things come before band, so there is no obligation to attend every rehearsal or concert, and we currently have many people such as shift workers who enjoy coming along when they are free. Send us a PM if you would like to get your HOBBY back!!
